This is a continuation of my previous posts. I just posted a reply to Barbara Froman's commment to my last entry, explaining that I was rather feisty in my youth. I'm older, now and more circumspect.                            ...

This is a continuation of the previous days' posts. Fred's message begins, "Hello pretty." Am I intimidated? A little. Will I back down? No. My identity was stolen years ago, when the term "identity theft" was relatively unknown. I'd been issued a department store credit card and had recently...
